Engine failure forces Ivanka, Jared’s helicopter to return to airport.
US President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law had to use a commercial flight instead of a personal helicopter in order to arrive in New York, according to CNN.
Citing law enforcement sources, CNN has reported that engine failure on board a helicopter carrying Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner forced them to take an ordinary flight from Washington to New York on March 15.
The incident prompted the Trump Organization’s Sikorsky two-engine helicopter to return to Washington’s Ronald Reagan National Airport, from where the couple flew to New York in a commercial plane.
It was not immediately clear why the two decided to use a helicopter rather than a jet to fly to New York.
